I finally got around to bolting the starter onto the engine.  Just needed to make the hardware…

The master cylinder is done.  The cap was machined as were the fittings and mounting hardware.  The seals between the reservoir and cylinder were made from soft vinyl.  The decals were drawn and printed by me.

Thanks Guido!

 

The header had already been modified to work with the other LHD converted pieces from when I wrote the Scale Auto article chronicling how to do it.

It was in two pieces still as it comes in the kit.  I cemented them together and filled the seam and ejection pin holes.  The flanges have been drilled to accept the mounting hardware (that I still have to make).

As others on here have said Mark, your skilled scratch building for this project is something to admire, and indeed learn from. Certainly, this type of work is beyond my skill level, and I like the 3D drawings showing your detailed understanding of each component part.

The pipes were bent from brass tubing.  The rear bracket is brass sheet.

I milled flanges to attach the exhaust system to the header.

I finished making the battery cables for the side terminals.  (The hex heads are the correct size.)

The battery is done, slightly weathered/dirtied up.  (I can't attach the cables until I know how to route them after I install it.) The top terminals are scaled correctly so the positive one is a hair larger diameter than the negative post.  I drew all the art and printed the decals.

The connector pipe between the header and muffler is done.  I machined the hardware (with lock nuts) and made a gasket too.
